The real test will come when it's time to shell out the money for a license for ICCavr. Will he be true, or will he crap out? For a real license (not the skinny, cheap one) he would definitely crap out, let me assure you. For the $200 license it will be a toss up. Or a throw up. Will he give up carburetors and study WinAVR to save $200? Stay tuned.

Chuck,
When you do make the move to get the license for the ImageCraft ICCAVR compiler, fork out the extra $50.00 for the USB security key.

With the standard ImageCraft ICCAVR "Soft License " you are limited to the computer that the "Soft License " is installed on - period!

With the USB security key, you can move to any machine that has v7.xx installed and go to work. This was a good decision on my part.

Also, if your machine takes a dump, you don't have to get a new "Soft License " from ImageCraft - they are quick about it but, it's still a hassle. With the USB security key, all you have to do is install the compiler, activate the USB driver, plug the USB security key and, you're good to go.

Simple!!!

I must say that the biggest eye glazer with GCC is the makefile, very geek-ish, but I remember using batch files (remember the good ol' days?) for asm so I can't really complain, EXCEPT that in my "senior years" I have given into M$ and just want to click on things, command line stuff has to be invisible to me. The GCC interface to Studio makes it a little easier and it will get better I hope.
Of course nothing compares to the sheer beauty, art and poetry of ASM :lol: ...what's the topic for this thread anyway ...

You develop applications with MICROCONTROLLERS IN ASSEMBLY and makefiles are too GEEKY!?!?!

:lol:

You can have my mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off of it.

Writing assembly language for PCs/MACs would be geeky. For microcontrollers it's simply the correct way to do things. :)
